Derek Carr: Raiders Over Shock Of Khalil Mack Trade

The whirlwind weekend for Khalil Mack, the Bears and all of Chicago is finally over. I don't blame Gurley, or any running back, for not wanting to absorb a tackle from the University of Buffalo great. He got some draft picks, but that's one of the best defensive players in the league. Alongside Mack will be former Georgia stars Roquan Smith and Leonard Floyd, also Kentucky Wildcat Danny Trevathan.

The Buccaneers were the only team of the eight acquiring that top talent to win a Super Bowl with that player. We got people to show up, and it wasn't just the two of us. Instead, Mack was shipped to Chicago and reportedly agreed to a six-year, $141 million contract extension with the NFC North team. "The Bears made us an offer, two first-round draft choices and here we are today". "People are trying to divide us: 'I wanted him gone, he wanted him here.' We made a decision as an organization".

"They're trying to divide us", Gruden said, via ESPN while addressing reports that he and McKenzie had differing opinions on whether or not they should keep Mack. The past year of my career I went up there and wasn't any good anymore and stole their money. "It makes it feel a little bit better knowing that we accomplished that together, because that's what we wanted".

Perhaps that's why it was Peppers who - after he gave a much-talked-about inspirational pregame speech in the Green Bay locker room before his first game against the Bears as a Packer, in 2014 - expressed empathy for his old team after a 55-14 Green Bay victory.

"We're going to be second-guessed until the cows come home on this, I understand that". That's the only thing we won't cross off the list. "One of the reasons I'm here is because of him".

The Raiders have a week to get over their loss.

What followed after that were billboards of Mack placed through Chicago by the Bears, jerseys already on sale in stores and online and, eventually, turning the page to the Packers and the regular-season opener at Lambeau Field on Sunday night. We were always talking about things and open with each other about everything we were doing, because we had plans together. New head coach Matt Nagy, a proud descendant of the Andy Reid coaching tree, figures to find innovative ways to use all of them, as well as pint-sized running back Tarik Cohen.

"This is the story I tell the Bears fans to make it all right - because they're disgruntled I did that - and after I tell it to them like this they're all right with it", McMichael said.
